Even if it doesn't end up being Redford's last role... it's the best swan song imaginable for him. [Full review in Spanish]

January 18, 2019
Worth it for Redford's swan song.
January 16, 2019
Makes a fitting postscript to one of Redford's best-loved films, Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid (1969).

Redford couldn't have picked a better final curtain; The Old Man & the Gun is a charming homage to a certain era of film and Americana.

Moderately entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 10, 2019
A late in the game montage is a crafty excuse to re-examine Redford's career.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
January 9, 2019
You couldn't get a better actor than Robert Redford to portray the based-on-fact thief Forrest Tucker in David Lowery's The Old Man & the Gun.
January 9, 2019
The cinematography is casually elegant, its pace is slow-moving, and its plot has a deep touch of humanity.

Sometimes, premeditated or not, there are moments of extreme, delicate, and harmonious perfection. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 29, 2018
A compelling crime caper with Redford still delivering the goods and a filmmaker perfectly content letting him steal the show one final time.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
December 28, 2018
In The Old Man & the Gun, Lowery discovers his warmest shade of nostalgia yet, tinted with just a hint of thoughtful ambivalence.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 26, 2018
[A] meditative and thought-provoking look at mortality, commitment and people's penchant for chasing something they might never catch.
December 26, 2018
Redford deserves more from the script and direction, as does the audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 26, 2018
It's so squarely the Redford show that the fact he's playing a real-life career criminal, Forrest Tucker, is curiously by-the-by.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 21, 2018
While this may not go down in history as one of Redford's greatest films, it's filled with iconic shots, a great soundtrack, and bittersweet, award-worthy performances.

December 20, 2018
Every time Forrest and Jewel go into one of their love chats -- in tight close-up, to go along with the grainy '70s-style cinematography -- the movie slows down a little more. By the end, it's barely breathing.
December 19, 2018
Redford is such a charmer, the thief he plays can easily get you to root for him to succeed.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
December 18, 2018
Redford modestly, yet effortlessly has us fall for his character, a loveable rogue whose heart has stayed in the right place in spite of a lifetime running on the wrong side of the law.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 15, 2018
The chemistry between Redford and Spacek's lights up the screen with the sizzle and crackle of a prescribed Midwestern burn. It was a pleasure to watch the film legends bounce tender moments off each other.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 12, 2018
This is smart, big-hearted entertainment for grown-ups. Beyond that, it's a worthy send-off to one of the greats-if indeed it really is his send-off.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
